Description

Zooming Secretary is a homebrew game, where you play as a secretary who has to answer phone calls asking trivia information on the subject of history, geography, literature or astronomy. You answer by going to the appropriate file cabinet, remember the topic and then answer the call. You can only hold one topic in your head at a time, indicated by an icon in the top left hand corner. The caller want answers and they want them quick, a phone call starts blue, then red and finally white, before hanging up. Miss five calls and you're fired, although they immediately rehire meaning you have infinite continues.

Also in the office are your co-workers, they mostly distract you from your work although some of them could be helpful. There's the chief who likes to give you instructions and thing that it will make you hurry, but in fact it only slows things down. A woman in red dress with cookies who hangs around all the day, she's big so you can't pass through her. A tall nerdy girl who likes to talk very much, but can't concentrate. She constantly changes topics and may confuse you, but sometimes she may tell something that you actually need. The geeky guy who loves you but fears to even come close, and always acts so awkward that sometimes he can be an obstacle. Swamper with a huge box walks around aimlessly, knocking you down. A handsome guy who inspires you a lot but he always tries to avoid you. Touch him and you get a "wild card" topic with which you can answer any phonecall.

Each level is one day at the office, there are 7 days and one dream section. Beat the game to earn a vacation at the beach.
